Quinn: Guns in Bars 'A Prescription for Violence'
Quinn spoke Friday outside Wrigley Field, standing with the many bars and restaurants of Chicago's Wrigleyville neighborhood as a backdrop. Quinn says letting people carry guns into bars and restaurants is "a prescription for violence and disaster."
Earlier this week Quinn used his amendatory veto to send a measure that would allow the concealed carry of firearms back to lawmakers with several changes.
Among them is a ban on guns in any establishment that serves alcohol. Currently, the legislation bars guns only from businesses where liquor sales make up 50 percent or more of gross sales.
Lawmakers will meet Tuesday to try to override Quinn's veto.
